Bobbys Cabin Author Rick IncorviaRick, Jamie and Bobby were the best of buds. Now well into middle age, they enjoy frequent getaways into the mountains, leaving wives and responsibilities back home. A typical weekend at Bobby’s cabin might include long days of cutting and hauling firewood, landscaping or carpentry but always concluded with a big meal, target shooting, and a sunset viewed from the hot tub. Evenings were filled with poker, plenty of drinking and boisterous fun. However, recent break-ins during the many weeks the cabin was left unattended had Bobby angry, frustrated and on high alert. He suspected a sketchy character with a mangled hand who lived just a few miles through the woods. Despite the local cops’ warnings not to do anything stupid, Bobby had his own ideas about how to police his 50-acre slice of heaven. When an unintentional murder turns into a cover-up, the escalating pressure unmasks psychotic paranoia, and best friends battle over loyalties and right versus wrong. Suddenly, it’s every man for himself.

Reluctantly, she acquiesces and makes a phone call to the police with her confession. That’s when things get dicey.

Rick Timber is a reckless young man, but you had to admire his ambition. He was a small-time con-artist living in either high-end hotels or out of his car. He was a loner. Who needs friends when you have split personalities to keep you company? One of Rick’s alter egos, Tim Bricker, was fearless. He had an eye for curvy women and nerves of steel when it came to the short con.





As one of nine children growing up in the 70’s, Rick was surrounded by a cast of characters where controlled chaos was the status quo. He felt that if he didn’t create his own identity, he would get lost in the crowd. Admittedly, he was a bit of a troublemaker and sometimes liked being lost in the crowd, or at least unaccounted for. If he wasn’t scheming a plot to prank a sibling, he was imagining himself as 007 or an Ocean’s Eleven participant. His brothers and sisters say his favorite line is …”just imagine.”


Rick is a born storyteller. Book number five, The Traveler’s Best Seller, reflects his boundless creativity as he introduces historical characters in real-life situations. He takes you on exciting adventures in dreamlike fantasies with intoxicating detail. Rick’s ability to “keep it real” and yet take readers to the edge, has thrilled his cult following.



Can’t remember where I heard this acronym but it stands for Butt In The Chair, Hands On Keyboard. I like to remind myself that writing is a pleasure, not a chore. I always greet my chair as if a good friend. “Hello writing chair. Is this a good time? I have some great ideas that I would like to run past you.” I try to anticipate my needs for the next two hours. Use the […]

Too Much vs. Not Enough

It’s a fine line … How do you know when you write too much versus not enough? Many authors feel the need or obligation to drone on about every detail, with characters that have very little to do with the story. We love when they help us to see, to hear and even to smell the main characters. However, if Mary’s mother’s aunt isn’t a main character, we don’t need to know that she had […]

Character Development

Character Development Today’s blog is about character development. This is one of my favorite topics. Some people can pick up an instrument, and in 30 minutes, they can play it. Others learn a new language as easy as I learn a new card game. Some authors’ strength is developing a great story or a brilliant use of the language. For me, it’s character development. I can see them, I can smell them, I can feel […]
